Guide to Asian aviation in one book

SP’s Civil Aviation Yearbook follows the tradition of the publisher’s Military Yearbook which was first published 55 years ago.

The previous edition had clearly focused on its home market, but the second edition has expanded its reach to cover the various sub markets across the whole of the Asian continent from Saudi Arabia in the west to Japan in the East

The authors – led by SP’s Aviation’s editor-in-chief Jayant Baranwal – provide a series of op-ed articles on subjects ranging from the world of turboprops to electric aircraft and concerns over capacity crunch.
Of course much has moved on since the book was published late in 2019 – who then could have predicted Covid?
The Yearbook is a stamp in time, a broad snapshot of the civil aviation industry in happier days.
More than half of the Yearbook is devoted to data including organisation charts of various government departments or the names of the key personnel across airlines and airports.
How many of those have survived in post since the start of the pandemic will only be known when the 2020 review is published.
